Lebron James didn't like that Klay Thompson called him out for having his "feelings hurt" in the run up to James's confrontation with Draymond Green in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
“This is a man’s league," Thompson said of the incident that resulted in Green's Game 5 suspension. "I guess (LeBron’s) feelings got hurt.”So James played the martyr in his response to Thompson's words.
“My goodness. I’m not going to comment on what Klay said. It’s so hard to take the high road,” James explained. “Been doing it for 13 years, and it’s so hard to continue to do it, but I’m going to do it again.Steph Curry's wife Ayesha has already mocked James's "high road" remarks.
Her getting into the fray like that was a little questionable, since she's obviously never played the game.
But Klay Thompson's dad Mychal -- the number one overall pick of 1978 -- certainly has. And the former Laker and Blazer lit into Lebron James today in a radio interview.
